Great news! “The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe” is on Amazon Prime—and a very good print
It is so much better than the American remake with Tom Hanks, as is immediately obvious from the change in the title: the American version is titled “The Man with One Red Shoe.”
Watch the real thing, and watch it now. Terrific movie.
Have I ever steered you wrong?
It has its own subtitles already, so don’t turn subtitles on.
UPDATE: I would add that, fittingly, has a wide range of humor, as a symphony has a wide range of loudness—from close to daily-life ordinary to hysterical farce for one, from pianissimo to fortissimo for the other. American comedies, like (say) rock and roll, tend to have a much narrower range, the music played all at one volume, the humor, all of the same punch-line type, being continuous throughout, like I imagine would be a conversation with Henny Youngman.
The set-up is Hitchcockian (cf. North by Northwest et al.).
Wonderful movie. Don’t rush it.
